In Europe Schools
November 11, 2020 @ 4:30 pm - 6:30 pm| €15
In 2019, EuroClio and Dutch national broadcaster VPRO joined forces and developed In Europe Schools – A Unique Exchange Project for European Schools! Inspired by the VPRO-series In Europe – History Caught in the Act, EuroClio and VPRO produced four different Education Kits on Modern European History: Difficult History, Migration, Climate Change and Gender Equality.
In Europe Schools matches participating schools to another participating school elsewhere in Europe to exchange and reflect on their end product: A documentary made by students! Based on the topic and a research question, students are encouraged to dive into their own local histories, do research, and process their answers into a documentary.
During this workshop, author Harri Beobide will demonstrate one of the newest Education Kits on Climate Change, which will focus on the question: How do we deal with Climate Change? She will be joined by VPRO’s Odette Toeset and EuroClio’s Steven and Eugenie who will present how this project came about, how it works and how to fully use it online.!
